Overview

SkysenxHub’s TechCamp is our summer training platform for kids and teens during holidays where we introduce them to different technologies that will help shape their career paths. It is an annual event aimed at inculcating kids and teens with the technological skills required in the 21st century. Participants learn from basic technological concepts, to designing and building electronic circuits and programming the same. Started in 2019, our maiden edition which ran for 5 weeks was rewarding in both knowledge and fun.

Our 2024 edition which commerces August 5th promises to be an exciting TechCamp like never before, introducing more training programs to accommodate more areas of interest and improving on existing ones. This year edition is packed with lots of projects to make it engaging fun.

Internet of Things (IoT) age 13+

Fee: N70,000

Our Internet of Things(IoT) Camp introduces participants from age 13 and above to connected devices and the associated technologies that facilitate their use. This training program covers fundamental knowledge in 4 areas: Electricity, Networking, Artificial Intelligence & Smart Devices.

Participants will have hands-on experience working with electricity, using electrical components, and understanding various networking protocols for communication between devices over a local area network and the internet. The program also introduces participants to Artificial Intelligence(AI), a fast-rising industry in digital computing where computers perform common and complex tasks that mimic human intelligence. The program concludes by introducing participants to smart switches, how to set them up, and integrating them with Apps like Google Home & Assistant, Amazon Alexa, ESPHome etc.

At the end of the training, participants will have working knowledge about electricity, the internet and setting up connected devices like smart switches & sensors. Participants will work together to showcase projects such as Solar & Inverter Installations, Hydro Power, Smart Home Solutions, etc.

We also teach participants how to program the Micro Bit directly using the MicroPython programming language.

The Micro Bit (also referred to as BBC Micro Bit, stylized as micro:bit) is an open source hardware ARM-based embedded system designed by the BBC for use in computer education in the United Kingdom. The device is described as half the size of a credit card and has an ARM Cortex-M0 processor, accelerometer and magnetometer sensors, Bluetooth and USB connectivity, a display consisting of 25 LEDs, two programmable buttons, and can be powered by either USB or an external battery pack. The device inputs and outputs are through five ring connectors that form part of a larger 25-pin edge connector.

The Micro Bit was designed to encourage children to get actively involved in writing software for computers and building new things, rather than being consumers of media. Children love to see things happen which makes learning programming with the Micro Bit device fun and rewarding in knowledge.

Each participant gets a complete kit of Micro Bit which includes the Micro Bit itself, a battery pack, a usb cable to upload software and a pouch for convenience.
